    when i was planning on breastfeeding i went out and bought loads of nursing bras and some from mothercare and M&S and i have to say hands down get M&S ones just the plain ones they are about 20 odd quid for 2 a black a white one and they are brilliant and so comfatable the mothercare ones i was not impressed with but the M&S ones are brilliant loads of people i know have said they are definatly the ones to get.

    I got mine from M&S. I found mothercare really expensive!! I think mine were about £20 for 2 and they done the job fine :) xxx

    I went to Mothercare. I found M&S ones a little too plain for my taste although they were cheaper.

    Neither! I couldnt get Mothercare ones to fit and M&S seemed a strange shape. I love Emma Jane ones you can get from figleaves.

    My favourite and most comfortable I found (and I feel like I have tried HUNDREDS!!) are from Debenhams, Miriam Stoppard ones.

    ^^ I have these ones too, and another similar set from M&S, very happy with them.

    I never used to wear a bra to sleep in and didn't like the idea, so I got these from Toys/Babies R Us:
    https://www.toysrus.co.uk/Babies-R-...-Carriwell-Maternity-Bra-Extra-Large(0023479)

    Very comfy for sleeping, although you do just have to pull them up to feed.

    Neither! I wasn't a fan of the mothercare ones, but M&S where okayish!
    My best ones are ones from NCT, fit really well and soo comfy! I wouldn't wear any others! I guess its trial and error though!! I got mine 3 days before i had my lo and i wish i had got them sooner....i would of been so much more comfortable!!

    I tried the m&s ones and just didn't feel supported at all. I ended up with Peacocks £4 each and pretty lace design - really comfortable with easy opening and straps that didn't dig in.

    mothercare's nursing bras are terrible for larger breasted ladies, mine fell out of the bra. the M&S ones were slightly better but not great. I bought mine online in the end :hugs:

    I'm a larger busted lady and some of the M&S ones are great, however some designs such as the leopard and grey set are a lot less supportive and are sized totally differently. In my case the fitting ladies couldn't find a size to fit me in store and said they had noticed problems with getting a good supportive fit on other ladies, so I left that one be. Mothercare their bras fit very funny and the materials used are not good quality.
